School of Hard Locks

*Ending Sept 22nd*
Welcome to our immersive, non-linear, multi-room challenge.

You and your classmates never deserved to get caught. One hour detention?! More like 60 minutes to make good your escape! The faster you escape the faster the summer holiday can start!

Jewellery Heist

£1,000,000 is yours, if you can grab it.

You have a plan. You have an escape route. You even have a man on the inside setting the robbery up for you. Break in, steal everything (maybe solve the mysteries of the Illuminati if you have time) and then break out again. What could go wrong?

Player Testimonials

Brilliantly put together rooms. Really creative and thoughtful clues. We did the jewellery heist twice! Excellent variation of puzzles for all different skill types. Wonderfully friendly staff/owner who clearly have a huge passion for what they do. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!

The Room was really well planned, lots of puzzles to keep us busy. We took 2 teenagers and it was perfect for all of us. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its easy to find and has plenty of parking. We came out absolutely buzzing and we will be going back to do their other room!

Excellent! My son was invited to a birthday party there they thoroughly enjoyed it and managed to escape with 15 seconds left on the clock!

Great location, friendly welcoming staff, very enjoyable rooms, great for groups!
